Today our featured member is our Director of Social and Recruiting Activities, David Mingee. He is an Accounting and Finance double major who happens to also be a professionally trained dog groomer. When he’s not attending school or meetings or organizing some of our awesome events, he can be found outdoors, often with his dog. He loves to hike and kayak. As another commuter student, he understood the value of becoming involved on campus in order to build relationships with individuals that were very similarly goal oriented. Beta Alpha Psi gave him the opportunity to associate with people he considers the kindest he’s met and worked with. The level of immersion into the professional accounting field that BAP furnishes has been invaluable to David. He has been able meet professionals, attend in house functions at the firms, and have one on ones with recruiters at meetings. He encourages others to get involved. Starting to see a trend? As most others are quoted, he too feels that you get out of something what you put in it. “Participate! Go to the events, talk to the guest speakers, and follow up with anyone you talk to. These people want to hire you, all you have to do is let them know you are interested and you will find they are much nicer than you are probably thinking they are.” David, we wish you the very best semester and beyond, and safe travels.
